Description sandip 2003-09-30 12:38:07 UTC
In MSword, when you select a region and then add a comment, the whole region is
highlighted. Helps in identifying that the comment is relevant  to this region.

In OOo, if you do the same, the region is *deleted* (shows up as deleted when
working in "record changes" mode, and is deleted completely if not in track
changes mode).

Please explain step by step, I am not clear about your problem

Please Attach the documents which make this problem, so we can test
it/faster to confirm.  
(Without the documents, we cannot confirm the problem easily/need more
Don't forget to cut other part of the documents, so the file size is
small, but we still able to see the problem.

I dont think this problem is specific to a document. It has been
confirmed independently by an additional person on the list.

To replicate this problem:
1. Select an area of the text.
2. Insert->Note.
3. After the note is written, come back and see the selected area. It
will be deleted.

This is a major difference with MSWord in collaboration.
 - In OOo, effect of doing these steps is similar to selecting an
area. and then writing (The selected text is replaced).
- In MSword, doing these steps cause the whole selected area to be
marked with the comment.
